Event details: This day-long workshop will support graduate students in the research or planning phase of their dissertation or thesis. Fellow graduate students and librarians will share strategies to enhance graduate research. Participants will learn how to locate new sources and identify places to find sources to expand bibliographies, discover strategies for managing sources, identify potential gaps in current research and exchange ideas with other graduate students who are in a similar phase in their research process.
The schedule and presentations will be customized based on the applications received and the needs identified. Potential topics could include, but are not limited to, advanced strategies for conducting literature reviews, citation and research organization strategies, locating the latest research on a topic and refining research questions.
There is no cost to participate. Space is limited to 30 registrants and application is required. Acceptance to attend will be determined by the description of the applicant’s research project, their current stage of research (those in the research or planning phase of their dissertation or thesis) and identified needs.
